Matthew Dippel of Grand Rapids was on a road trip in California with a friend and was hiking near Taft Point when he decided to stop and take pictures, WLIX reported. That's when he saw the marriage proposal and quickly snapped a photograph.

"I looked at my camera right after to make sure that I actually got it and I was wowed. That's an incredible shot," Dippel told WOOD.

Dippel and his friend walked to Taft Point and tried to find the couple, but they had already left.

Dippel asked several people, but no one knew who they were, WLIX reported.

"I walked over there to go try to figure out who the couple was. I asked maybe 20-25 people and nobody knew who they were," Dippel told WOOD.

Dippel decided to post his shot on social media, hoping the couple could be identified. He has posted on FacebookTwitter and Instagram.

"Honestly I'd like to give them just a big print of the photo because it's such an incredible moment," Dippel told WOOD. "It's a very cherished moment that hopefully they can see this photo and be able to relive that moment on that cliff."
